  • AR Unemployment Holds Steady at 3.7 Percent

The Cayuga County January 2018 unemployment rate of 6.4 percent was up from 6.3 percent for the same month in 2017. Charleston County had the lowest unemployment rate at 4.0 percent.

The unemployment rate for Vermont's 17 labor market ranged from a low of 2.3 percent in White River Junction to 6.4 percent in Derby. Government employment fell by 0.5 percent, according to the Department of Workforce Solutions. Putnam County's 5.5 percent is the fifth highest jobless rate in Florida.

The unemployment rates for Grand Island, Lincoln and Omaha have not been seasonally adjusted, so they can not be directly compared with the state unemployment rate.

Looking at the December-to-January numbers areawide, most counties had increases in their jobless rates ranging from four-tenths of a percentage point to a full point.

Manufacturing added 2,400 jobs, mostly in nondurable goods manufacturing (1,600). The results of the latest annual benchmarking adjustment process, which is conducted by BLS each year at this time for every state, show an increase in 2017 employment. Under that measure, which includes the under-employed or those who have dropped out of the labor force (and who are therefore not counted in Florida's official unemployment figure) the unemployment and underemployment figure for Florida is now 9.1 percent, substantially higher than the national average of 8.5 percent.

When people stop looking for work, they are no longer considered unemployed for the objective of calculating the jobless rate, thus lowering the rate. Many employers have said they're unable to add jobs because there is a lack of available talent with the right qualifications. "Over the year, manufacturing payrolls accounted for close to half of the total increase of jobs in IL".

The largest decline was in professional and business services, which lost 2,300 jobs.

Hancock County's unemployment rate rose slightly in January but still was low enough to tie with Auglaize County for third lowest in Ohio.
